Living By Faith, Part 1

Hebrews 11:1-6

Life is such a gift but this life is not all that there is.  This life is observed in the context of faith, hope and love.  Faith recognizes first the reality that God exists and that he rewards those who seek him.  Faith looks toward the future and what we hope for but also it looks towards what is unseen.  When our vision and our purpose transcends ourselves it can be strong and we can achieve great things.  When we are ready and willing to give our lives to achieve God’s purposes he can use us to achieve his vision.  If however our vision and purpose are not strong, if we have lost heart, it can poison our souls and drive us towards apathy and depression.

Faith is not only an intellectual thing, it must also cause us to act differently if it is real.  Jesus came to this earth and showed us by his example of what this life of faith truly is.  When we walk by faith and not by sight with God he has promised to be with us … to the end of the age.
